Photographs of, and artwork inspired by, the late Elizabeth Taylor are set to go under the hammer for charity.

The items, including a 1997 black-and-white portrait of the acting icon taken by fashion photographer Herb Ritts, will be auctioned off during a special Los Angeles event hosted by her close friend, actor Colin Farrell, on February 27, on what would have been Taylor’s 82nd birthday.

Proceeds will benefit The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation to help fight the spread of HIV and AIDS.

J-Connection: Elizabeth Taylor converted to Judaism.
